ICE IS NEVER 100% SAFE! Do not judge ice safety on thickness alone. Ice does not form or maintain a uniform thickness. Snow, wind, slush, temperature, and other factors can cause ice thickness and strength to vary greatly, even within inches. Recreate on the ice at your own risk and verify ice thickness as you head out.

Recent rain and rising temperatures have made the ice considerably weaker. More water is flowing in from the inlet rising the lake and creating much softer and often broken unsafe edges. The amount of safe ice to walk on is diminishing very quickly.

The water in the lake is filling up.

Our Day Use areas are open and lower restrooms have been winterized. Please use Goldhill restroom.

Lower Campgrounds are closed and all of the water has shut off in all campgrounds around the park.  To make a reservation, either click on the reservation link on our parks website or call 1-800-322-3770.
